Lunch at Cafe Baraka - What a treat!

MB | Jun 16, 2005 03:04 PM

I've been in for dinner before, but today was my first lunch. The place was about 1/2 full and though I've heard great things about the tuna sandwich, I went with the merguez. 3 links layered on a watercress salad with chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion and then piled on top of that Berber flatbread. Pomme frites on the side, very soft but flavorful, like they were done in REALLY clean oil.They were covered a just slightly spicy/smoky red sauce and very well peppered. Two sandwiches and one rosewater lemonade was just under $14 including tax. Such a treat (as long as you're not in a rush!)

As we were leaving, another diner had a great looking flatbread that looked like olives and feta and greens, others had a shared couscous. The owner brings you the dinner menu in case you'd like to order off that instead. Nice.
